7 Recipes to Celebrate Genius Chef Daniel Boulud on His Birthday

By F&W Editors Posted March 25, 2016

Happy birthday, Daniel Boulud!

Where would we be without Daniel Boulud? Over the years at his 13 restaurants, he’s given us foie gras-stuffed burgers, crispy, potato-wrapped sea bass, spectacular sausages and unparalleled charcuterie. Plus, the insanely talented French chef was a member of F&W’s first-ever class of Best New Chefs in 1988. In celebration of his birthday, here are some of his top recipes to make at home.

1. Gargantuan Gougères

Food & Wine:

Almost twice the size of ordinary gougères, theses are a bit like crispy, cheesy, slightly spicy popovers.

2. Scallop Rosettes with Avocado and Creamed Tandoori Chayote

Food & Wine:

For this delicious recipe, chef Daniel Boulud quickly cooks scallop slices, then serves them with a rich, tangy avocado-tomatillo sauce and Indian-spiced hearts of palm (we substitute chayote, which is easier to find).

3. Chilled Spring Pea Soup

Food & Wine:

This easy take on Boulud’s complex soup calls for a simple mix of sugar snaps and frozen baby peas.

4. Braised Chicken Legs with Green Olives

Food & Wine:

Quickly develop a ton of flavor by braising chicken in a mix of onions, carrots, bacon and olives.

5. Brazilian Seafood Soup

Food & Wine:

This tangy, buttery soup is a gorgeous way to show off fresh seafood.

6. Gâteau Basque

Food & Wine:

There are many versions of this exquisite tart from the Pays Basque region of France. Boulud created his with pastry chef Eric Bertoïa: A flaky crust surrounds a pastry cream dotted with brandied cherries.

7. Tropical Fruit Sundaes

Food & Wine:

For a fun yet elegant dessert, Daniel Boulud tops an easy, creamy ginger-mascarpone mousse with chopped mangoes and pineapple, raspberries and generous scoops of vanilla ice cream.
